Nature’s Way Preschool (NWPS), part of the Austin Nature & Science Center, is a unique nature preschool enrichment program that provides young children with an immersive experience into the wonders of the natural world. Children experience outdoor adventures with fun, hands on nature & science experiences designed to connect them to the natural world while encouraging curiosity & excitement. Experiences may include climbing, digging, mud and water play, balancing on logs, creek exploration, and nature walks. Activities help to develop coordination, promote self-esteem and increase a sense of wonder. In this nurturing and safe environment, they are encouraged to take initiative, express their ideas and make choices. Our goal is to help them become more aware of the world around them and appreciate it as a precious natural resource worth protection.
